A Word From the Filmmakers
Beyond the question of where hurricanes strike, we wanted to tell the tales of the wind.
To speak of winds beyond imagination. To understand the stress of waiting; the relief of the near miss. We wanted to observe the fragility and resilience of nature, to discover what the mightiest weather system on earth means to all those who live beneath its shadow. To be there at the heart of the storm, in the eleventh hour, when the deepest fears are faced, when hope, somehow, despite everything, survives.
